    Resolved [RESOLVED] VS 2010 - VB using a VC file

    I am using VB for our entire company. Recently, we have had a need to dial into a VT220 to retrieve information from our customers. We are using ZOC terminal and it has a .dll for Visual C that lets us automate ZOC without needing a human interfacing with it.

    Does anyone know anyway for a VB application to run a VC file? I highly doubt it and no one here has ever tried something like this, nor have I ever heard of anyone try this before. Just trying to see if this is even possible and if so - how...

    Limitation:
    -We cannot restructure our company using VC (way too large)

    Reason:
    -We import data on a daily basis but do not want to have to have someone remember everyday to run ZOC. In addition, our imports are done before anyone is in house.

    Thanks for your time...

    Microsoft has a KB article on creating a C DLL and then calling it from VB. Since you already have the C DLL, you can focus on section B, which goes over calling the dll:
